Field Day Focuses on Adding Organic Grain to Large Farms
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 08/10/2017

Transitioning to organic grain will be the topic of the upcoming field day in Grand Marsh later this month. The 'Adding Organic to Large-Scale Farms' event will be held August 24 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Wallendal Farms. The field day is hosted by Wallendal Farms, OGRAIN, and the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service.

"With prices often two to three times conventional commodity prices, farmers stand to gain after navigating the sometimes challenging transition process," says ORGAIN Manager Anders Gurda, which is a program of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Wallendal Farms is a leader and innovator when it comes to organic grain. The farm is in the midst of a 10-year effort to convert around one-third of its 3,200 irrigated acres to organic grain.

The field day will cover experiences on Wallendal Farms with organic transition, on-farm research, innovative crop rotations, successful farm transfer to the next generation, and running a parallel (organic and conventional) operation. The farm tour will show on-farm grain storage, conservation tillage, and the machines and implements the Wallendals use for specific applications.

Registration is free and includes a free lunch. Register by calling MOSES at 715-778-5775.
